Boehner Resigns…It’s a Start, Not a Finish


Like everyone else, when I checked on the news first thing this morning, all of the usual websites were in a tizzy over John Boehner, Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives, announcing his resignation set for next month.  Big changes are coming to GOP-led institutions.  Right.

I think I’m probably going to come off sounding a little skeptical here, but as far as major changes in the GOP…well, I’ll believe it when I see it.  The resignation of one leader, as much as I’d like to see him gone, doesn’t exactly restore my faith in the Republican Party.

Let’s get to some links, first.  On the front page of The Drudge Report, there is this article in the New York Times.  Also from Drudge, you can get to this analysis piece at The Hill.  Check those links out, if you like, and then come back here for my analysis.

Frankly, y’all, I’m seeing a furry, big-toothed squirrel of distraction when I think of Boehner resigning.  All of the mainstream outlets will be talking about a potential replacement for the next couple of weeks; and while I agree that the House Speakership is a big deal in governance, I’m having a hard time believing that business as usual is really being overturned.

Already we are being told that Planned Parenthood is likely going to keep their taxpayer funding, at least through December.  Isis still controls most of Iraq and Syria.  Israel is still in jeopardy from Iran and their nuclear program.  Obama is still in the White House; and the mainstream media still controls the narrative of culture in these United States.

Will a change in leadership of a political party bring about the acceptance of persecuted Christians from the Caliphate into the sanctuary of our borders?  We will have to see what happens in the coming weeks and months.  I’m just saying that Boehner’s departure may not be the victory that true Conservatives have been seeking.  I hope y’all will join me in continuing prayer for our country.
